There the runaway heiress discovered that women earned mere pennies and, dressing herself as a boy, signed on with the Pony Express. But what the defiant female never counted on was meeting horse breeder Quint Randolph, whose glance made her want to shuck her disguise... and whose touch made her want to beg for more!Kentucky GentFeeling guilty over his wife's death the year before, handsome Quint Randolph had sworn off women and now pursued only stallions that could improve his thoroughbreds. But when he first gazed at the tall, slender Pony Express rider, he knew right away that was no lanky lad... and his virile body responded as never before. Hating her for making him break his vow, loving her for reawakening his desire, Quint chased her along the dangerous trail, intent on making her share his bedroll during the long, hot Nevado Nights....

Nevada Nights Reviews
I read this book for two reasons. One, I'm trying to figure out how to borrow ebooks from my library and this is my first success, so yay. Second, this is one of those "I know I've read this before" books as I recognize the very purple cover, and as I read little details from the story would come back to me.The whole story is propelled by the power of Dallas Durango's bad decisions. She runs away from her private school and is working in Philadelphia where she discovers a drunk passed out on the street. She picks him up, takes him back to his hotel room and beds him with nary a care in the world for disease or possible pregnancy. She runs off again, this time to Missouri, where she's robbed and nearly raped. When the drunk shows up again, Dallas disguises herself as a boy and joins the Pony Express.Quint Randolph is a drunk, end of story. It was his drinking that cause the Great Tragedy in his past. He was dead drunk when he slept with Dallas. His idea of breakfast is a brandy. There's just too much baggage. Of course anybody stupid enough to sleep with a drunk stranger isn't going to see that. When Quint finally wakes up (alone) he's not even sure if he had sex or if it had just been a dream. Deciding yes, he did have intercourse, Quint concludes that even though he has no idea what the woman looks like or anything about her he must find his "dark angel" and marry her, because this is love, damnit! He hires a detective to turn the city upside down in search of the mystery woman although all he can tell the detective to look for is dark hair. (I just wonder how the detective went about his job with so little to work with. Did he simply go up to every dark haired woman on the street and ask, "Excuse me, did you pick a drunk up off the street and sleep with him?")When Quint and Dallas are thrown together again, she's already working for the Pony Express and he's worried about why he's so sexually attracted to this young boy. He quickly figures out she's really a girl (what a relief for him) and somehow also realizes she's his dark angel. The two marry and immediately embody the old saying of Marry In Haste, Repent In Leisure.And if I have to hear "'If only' are the two saddest words" one more time, I'm gonna slap somebody.
I normally don't read romance novels, but this one wormed its way into my heart. I thought that the plot was wonderful.
Nevada Nights definitely a keeper!Great Indian romance between a woman and two men who compete for her love. Ms. Gentry does her homework to make you feel like you are actually witnessing history in the making. A definite 5 star review!!!
What can one say about a good clean romance. Makes you feel good at the end when everything works out for the heroine.
I LOVED this book! Pure awesomeness! One of my all-time favorites. LOL!
Spunky heroine. Spicy.
